Photos from yesterday’s session.

My busy little baby has decided she really does not need any sleep to survive. It’s ridiculous!  She’s started napping for about an hour every day around noon.  Then she goes to sleep at night at 7 pm, and at 9 pm she wakes up, wide awake.  She stays awake until around midnight.  She still nurses all night long, between midnight and 7 when she gets up ready to party.  Sometimes it’s earlier than 7, depending on if Rosie gets up...

Ada meets the snow. 1

Ada meets the snow.

Ada met the snow for the first time yesterday.  It went like this: Rosie loves the snow. Ada started saying, “What’s that?” today.  She says it like, “Hut dat?” It might not be discernible to anyone who hasn’t been listening closely to her babble for the past few months, but I made a video of it anyway. At the end she repeats me saying “bless you”.  She repeats scrambled versions of a lot of stuff we say!  I think she’s going to be...

Christmas Day. 1

Christmas Day.

Christmas morning at home…Rosie hoped Santa would bring her a doctor kit and he did! Christmas was fun this year.  Rosie was incredibly excited and Ada frantically tried to eat wrapping paper and tape and tags. Then we went to my parents’ house for lunch… We had a great Christmas. It was Ada’s first Christmas, and it was a white Christmas. My house is a disaster and we are all exhausted!

Christmas Eve. 0

Christmas Eve.

Christmas Eve at my in-laws’ house… And then he threw up, right in the seat belt hole in the bottom of the seat…apparently he’d snacked on cat food prior to getting in the car. (Tyler’s brother.)

8 Months. 2

8 Months.

It’s been 8 months since the most amazing day ever. I gave birth to my sweet squishy Ada in our bed, in the same spot we’re snuggling in right now as I write this. I caught her with my own two hands while the midwife stood back and made the video. I did it!  I grew her in my womb, felt the top of her head inside of me as I dilated, and I was the first person to hold her. The other day...

The Necklace Saga. 0

The Necklace Saga.

For Rosie’s first birthday Tyler’s Granny gave her this little locket.  At the time I didn’t realize the significance of it–our lives were somewhat disorganized, we were just getting started out on our own and everything.  I remember we put the necklace on Rosie for his Granny to see, and later Rosie was tugging on it and fearing it would break I took it off and stuck it…somewhere. A year or so later Tyler’s Granny brought over this extremely expensive and out of...

Rosie’s Dance Recital.  <3 0

Rosie’s Dance Recital. <3

Rosie’s first dance recital last night went well.  She had such a great time! Despite any reservations I might have had about her outfit, they all looked SO CUTE together.  The other age groups did a wonderful job too.  Ada loved watching them dance.  She kept putting her arms over her head in an arch and then clapping her hands, and dancing by bending her knees.  I think maybe she will want to do dance when she turns four too… Look how...

Linoleum, Paint, and Teeth. 5

Linoleum, Paint, and Teeth.

Written last night… I’m kind of stumped on the mini accordion books.  I feel like the pictures should have continuity–like they should all be from the same shoot, but I don’t have enough pictures of my girls taken in one sitting that match because they never cooperate. Oh well. I made a yellow mini accordion book too, the front page is at the top there, but Tyler says he likes the brown one better, so brown it is!  (See previous entry.)  The brown has...

Christmas Season! 0

Christmas Season!

We set up our Christmas tree yesterday.  Rosie was bouncing off the walls with excitement.  Ada was in awe. So far Ada hasn’t tried to harm the tree.  We put the non-breakable ornaments towards the bottom just in case.  My real concern is that she’ll try to use a tree branch to pull to a stand and the whole tree will fall over.  Let’s hope that doesn’t happen!  It’s a small tree, so I’m sure the only real damage would be...

Welcoming Baby Ada. 0

Welcoming Baby Ada.

The first part to this, along with her birth video, is in the previous entry. For those who asked, Ada is pronounced like the letter A at the beginning. A-duh. Or Aid-ah, if you’d rather… Everything is going so smoothly this time, in comparison to the horrible time I had after Rosie’s birth. Baby Ada knows how to nurse so well! She latched on shortly after birth and didn’t stop nursing voluntarily for almost the entire first 24 hours. My milk...
